Required fields

I like the new Required field feature but there is a little thing in it that makes me want to disable it. That is when the deal is marked as "lost" in the early stages and it asks me to fill those fields that are required only in the last stages. In data field settings there is a tick box "Marking deal as lost" but that can't be unchecked. Is there any solution to this or is that "Marking deal as lost"-option coming later?

    You can configure which pipeline and which stages the requirement could be enforced.

    Marking deal as won/lost should be coming in later. I requested it a few days ago.

    Yeah, in this example if I had chosen field to be required in "Hot Pipeline" and "Quote" it automatically selects "Lost" ans "Won". So it won't let me mark deal as lost even in the "New lead" stage without filling the field.

    Agreed. Won and Lost need to be independently configurable.

    Yep, let's hope it will be possible soon!

    Hi @Harri Honkala and @Amit Sarda !

    We're rolling out these two options this week, so you will have more control over them, see here. This should make your life easier. 🚀

    HI,

    I noticed the options were open yesterday. Super! Thank you!
